FOOD FOR THOUGHT (PART 1. OF A SERIES)

TOUGH DECISIONS

Look at anguished families

Facing parental powers…

Wanting to take their loved ones home,

While ugly dementia flowers.

Listen to the wife who knows

In reality…

That her husband might not come home

Independently.

Costly improvements made at home

Are they worth it if he stays here…

Sell the house or mortgage it out

To pay it year-by-year?

What does one say to a spouse

Or parent incapable…

Shutting them up with visiting days

Inescapable?

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
